Mr. Fry was a native of Pennsylvania, from whence he emigrated to Virginia, from thence to East Tennessee, and thence to Alabama. He was one of that glorious band of patriots who, under God, assisted in achieving for us the liberties we now enjoy; he was truly the kind husband, the affectionate father, the obliging neighbor, the honest and industrious citizen.
